    I have been experiencing a kind of a film that will come over my left eye,
    not all the time but several times a day. I do have a sinus condition right now and it is plugged on my left side , which is the same eye that has the film occuring. I am taking antibiotics and I am going to go and get my eyes checked out when I am finished the antibiotics, incase the film has something to to with my sinus. It seems to me that I read somewhere, that SJW could cause cataracts. I would appreciated any information any has on this.
    Thanks = Lenore :rolleyes:

    I'm not an MD but I don't think a cataract can come and go like you describe. Once it's there, it's there unless surgically removed. Probably more related to your allergies and eye secretions. You should have your Dr check it out though just to be on the safe side.

    St. Johns wort and cataract

    I am probably not doing this right, but I wanted to thank Psyc for his reply to my question and you are right that is exactly what the doctor said when I went to him " It is not cataracts as they don't come and go:". He said it is a floater, which I have had in my eyes but never as big as this. I have an appointed to get my eyes examined this week with a eye doctor. Thanks again - Lenore :glasses:
